The Dallas Police are active on social media.

The Dallas Police department will now be on Pinterest, Twitter, and have an active crime blog. Recently members of the Dallas Police Department have attended a one day training session on how and when to use social media while in on the job.

Several Police officers are already active on Twitter, and can tweet from the crime scene. Apparently, they are not permitted to post crime scene pictures and are limited to what they are allowed to say. The twitter accounts are in hopes to alert young people who do not attend crime watch meetings.  Do we really want police officers looking down at their phones?  I think the twitter accounts are a good way to alert the community, but can’t they pay someone else to update them?

On another note, if you were recently robbed or lost something in Dallas you can visit the Dallas Police Pinterest page and search for your things.

    Interesting post. Mark Dorsey, Penn’s chief of police, is also a Org Dyn student. I wonder if Penn Police uses Twitter or other social media platforms.
